This deliciously moist and fluffy lemon bundt cake drizzled with a thick lemon icing is bursting with refreshing and tangy flavours. A perfect cake for Spring/Summer!
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 5 minutes
Yields 10 " bundt cake

Ingredients

For the Cake

  • 3 cups cake flour* 300g
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 4 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 and 1/2 cups caster sugar/granulated sugar 300g
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice 60ml
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil 180ml
  • 1 cup buttermilk 240ml, room temperature

For the Icing

  • 1 cup icing sugar 125g
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoons heavy cream

Instructions

For the Cake

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Grease a 10-inch bundt pan, and set aside.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and lemon zest. Set aside.
  3. Whisk together the eggs. Add the sugar, and whisk until combined. Add the lemon juice and vegetable oil, and whisk until combined. Mix in the dry ingredients, alternating with the buttermilk.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan and bake for 45 - 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean with moist crumbs. Let cool in the pan for 15 minutes before removing and letting cool completely on a wire rack.

For the Icing

  1. Whisk together the icing sugar, lemon extract, and heavy cream. Add more icing sugar if too runny, or more cream if too thick. The icing should be fairly thick, but pourable. Drizzle over the cooled cake, and serve.

Notes

*Instead of cake flour, weigh out 3 cups (375g) of plain/all-purpose flour, remove 6 tablespoons, and replace with 6 tablespoons of cornflour/cornstarch. Sift well.
